BeoCenter 2300 DAB
Manufactured: 1995 - 1995
Designer: David Lewis
This special 2300 was produced in 500 examples for a test of DAB by Danish Radio.
Built on B&O's 2300 platform, the 2300 DAB was modified with a Motorola Power PC 821 processor to control the special DAB-functions. The DAB receiver itself was placed in the accompanying "black-box" made by Bosch/Blaupunkt.
The radio can be used directly via the push buttons, or with help from a remote control unit, which is a modified computer made by Apple Newton NotePad.
A PCMCIA (PC Card) slot on the top left-hand side of the back casing was another difference from the ordinary 2300.
This classic design was reincarnated over a 21 year period with various mounts and stands. Floor stands were available with a pole stand or CD and tape storage, wall mount solutions allowed for the Hi-Fi only, or with BeoLab2500 speakers until these were discontinued
Bang & Olufsen's preferred supplier for brackets and stands, STBbrackets, have made a range of direct replacements and accessories for wall mounts 2052 and 2087. Distributed throughout the World by the Bang & Olufsen store network, the STB solutions add to the diversity of mounting options and positions available.
Bracket 2052 mounts the Hi-Fi to the wall without speakers. Compatibility: BeoSound Ouverture, BeoCenter 2300, BeoCenter 2500, BeoSound 3000, BeoSound 3200, BeoSound 4000
This replacement for Bang & Olufsen System Bracket 2087, has been engineered to meet a growing demand from customers who wish to mount BeoCenter2500 and later models, with BeoLab2500 speakers.
